YAHWEH…YAHWEH


Yahweh Yahweh

Hear as I say

A crumbling rock is I as I stand

All points of the compass lies the sinking sand

And as bits of I fall

Jah, hear as I call.

For the Saints and the Angels

The knights of the round table

The prophets of old

The wise man with his gold.

The heathens the sinners

Enslaved cotton spinners.

The trumpeteers

The cannoneers.

The old blues players

The Christian slayers.

For Peter for John

I need not go on

And as they arrive

To watch this demise

Hear me.

Repentance I cries.

Yahweh Yahweh.

    INSPIRED BY AN ELDERLY BLACK LADY CUSSING THE BUS DRIVER FOR BEING LATE.AS SHE WALKED PAST ME I HEARD HER MUTTERING”I IS A CRUMBLING ROCK SINKING IN THE SAND”.I THINK THAT PHRASE MAY BE BIBLICAL.

    It is brilliant, JS, with such good rhythm; a great feel to it. And the inspirational source, the elderly lady cussing the bus driver, is very evocative…
